Keep an eye out for vid of actual fit and strong people dealing to the tyre!
A couple of excerpts:
". . . a week after finding ouy wife was pregnant with our first child; I was struck by a semi-trailer en route to work. I was riding my mountain bike to work in Melbourne, after having purchased it six weeks earlier in an effort to get fit. It was working, as I had been losing about a kilo a week in weight and my fitness was improving out of sight."
"I spent two weeks bed ridden hospital, only being released after 65 days of long and painful physiotherapy and rehabilitation. It was tough but I was determined to recover enough to be at the birth of our child. In all I underwent 12 surgeries over 13 months, the longest lasting five hours."
"I did my first full triathlon in December last year at Lake Dunstan and my second at Lake Hayes at Easter this year. My swim really holds me back, but I make up for it on the bike leg and can hold my own on the run. I am never going to be at the pointy end of the field, but so far I have managed to avoid last place in all but one long distance duathlon."
A great story of courage, determination, and resilience - inspiring indeed.
